Where can I make a donation?
We have food bank collection points in most of our food stores and supermarkets, collecting items for 22 Trussell Trust and independent foodbanks in local towns and villages.

What items to donate
Foodbanks typically provide a minimum of three days of emergency food and support – and we’re dedicated to ensuring they have enough food available to continue to provide their valuable service.

Here are some items your local food bank needs:

  • Tinned ready meals, vegetables, fruit and puddings
  • Pasta, rice and noodles
  • UHT milk, long life juice, tea and coffee
  • Cereal, jam and marmalade
  • Biscuits, crisps and treats
